"Thanks to the Riverbed CMC, we can now have a real-time view of our data and global visibility of Raiffeisen operations."
—Dr. Peter Werth, Director, Raiffeisen Bank

The Riverbed® Central Management Console (CMC) simplifies the process of deploying and managing Steelhead® products that are distributed across a WAN. With this turnkey solution, you can easily configure, monitor, report on, and upgrade groups of Steelhead appliances from Riverbed and Virtual Steelhead™ — all through one web-based interface.

Riverbed offers customers the choice of two different delivery models for the CMC:

Hardware Appliance: The CMC 8150 simplifies the process of deploying, configuring, and managing Steelhead appliances. With just a few clicks, administrators are in full control of up to 2,000 Steelhead appliances or Virtual Steelheads.  Deploying, configuring, updating, and monitoring are all done through one web-based interface.
Virtual Appliance: The CMC-VE is a software-only version of the CMC that provides the full range of capabilities but is designed to run as a virtualized service on VMware platforms in private cloud environments. This enables customers and service providers to deploy the CMC-VE cost effectively and efficiently scale the administration, reducing the total cost of ownership of WAN optimization in the enterprise. The virtual platform also provides flexible migration of virtual machines between hardware platforms and high-availability features for increased fault tolerance.
